certainly hope somebody thought in the washington, d.c., area will invite me to dinner for christmas day. i don't even know if i will be able to get home. but i think if we do, we will then be very concerned about an austerity cliff. and really destroying our economy. i think it is very egregious that the republicans are willing to destroy the economy, perhaps create a worldwide recession, on behalf of continuing to campaign on their failed campaign of 2012. >> congresswoman, thank you so much for your time. i greatly appreciate it. >> thank you for having me, tamron. >> of course. let me bring in our news nation political panel today, nationally syndicated talk show host, michael mir is con his, chris kofinis and cheryl taupe let's from roll call. chris irk let me start off with an interesting thing i have noticed today. you have both sides now you not just saying but implying the other wants to go off the cliff for some kind of gain. >> not sure what gape they have. they have to budge on tax rates, that doesn't mean speaker boehner's party and caucus has come to terms with that. that is t
, warning lawmakers they will stay in washington until a fiscal deal is reached. allen west is here. before we get to the idea of staying in washington, you have said that negotiating with president obama is, to quote you, silly. >> i think when you look at what just happened today, the federal reserve will go into what is using -- >> greta: printing money. a fancy way to say it -- >> to the tune of $45 million a month foritous buy up our own treasury stocks. the argument is about $85 billion per year. when you put it thatn that context and understand that revenues have increased in the united states of america by 10% and spending by the for the government has increased 16% and we have a federal government spending 25s% of our gross domestic product, this is not a revenue issue, this is a spending issue. i think what we need to do is come up with the right type of legislation to solve this thing, keep these tax rates where they are and then if we want to come back next year and do the right thing, as far as the comprehensive tax scprmpl really solving this and promoting economic growth and
matthews in washington. let me begin tonight with this. president obama deserves the best possible secretary of state. he picked a great foreign policy officer in the first term. he deserves to have one in the second. it's been my view some distance from the white house that the president was truly undecided on who this person should be. ambassador rice's removal of herself from consideration made his decision easier. john kerry could end up a fabulous secretary of state. someone to make this country truly proud. he lost the presidency by a single state in 2004, then went on to become a deeply effective chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. he projects a grace under pressure that we see in the president himself, a noble attribute most of us take as quiet courage. as embarrassing as it is to admit he is one of the few top politicians in this democratic country to master foreign languages. not a small talent in world diplomacy. i like kerry because he's had the guts to run for office just like hillary clinton. he's had the nerve to stick his neck out and ask the voter t
're thinking washington would not be so stupid as to let this fall through, go off the fiscal cliff. bottom line we expect the speaker to hammer away on too much spending. washington has a spending problem, a familiar theme in all these talks, jenna. jenna: we'll take the viewers back there when bain starts to speak. mike, thank you. >> reporter: thank you. jon: wouldn't it be nice if he could talk about some progress. joining us with more on this, kimberly strassel, a columnist for "the wall street journal" as michael lewded to, they have about what, 72 hours really to get something concrete done here? >> that's right. when you think about this, everyone talks about the january 1st deadline but reality is most people are looking at next friday as the real deadline. they're assuming that that is when the markets consider there to be a deadline. if something isn't done by then maybe panic ensues. so when you work back from that you have to leave at least a week for the republicans to put something up in the house, give those requisite three days for members to read it, for the public to see
as the "wall street journal" nbc poll. let's go to washington to the senior congressional correspondent. dana, you talked to the two men who spent their careers in congress making deals like this. how do they pull it off? >> it was a fascinating conversation. the two men you are talking are about two former senate majority leaders. a republican and a democrat. trent lott and tom daschle. they worked on opposite sides for almost a decade. that is the question i asked. it wasn't always pretty, but how did you come up with deals when you had touch negotiations like what's going on right now. the answer was simple. talk to each other. >> i do think that they reached a point where they need to quit talking through the media. i'm talking about both parties and the leaders in congress. some of the most effective wi timth theresint or at dn least with the chief of staff and the director with our key budget people and we really talk about alternatives and hammered it out. >> this will be the test. if we reset it has to happen around the fiscal cliff first. there a lot of other issues out there that co

that tape was leaked to the "washington post," if it doesn't come from the reporter, does that mean it came from general petraeus? if so, why was he taping his conversations with reporters without them knowing it, and who leaked it and why? so that's still unresolved. and general petraeus, of course, was the commander before general allen. and of course the commander before general petraeus, who had to resign in his own political scandal, he is now poised to release a new tell-all blockbuster book who will open that whole scandal up again. those are the last three top guys. in terms of the top level leadership in the war in afghanistan, it's kind of a freaking mess, right? and it has been a mess for a long time. the pentagon just released its report that shows the results of president obama's big surge of troops into afghanistan after he took office. the report found that violence in afghanistan after the surge is higher than it was before the surge. enemy-initiated attacks are higher now than they were before the surge started, the surge that was supposed to decimate the enemy. one of the
